How Do I, Video Tutorials

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Wed Jan 23, 2013 9:16 pm

Well with Construct 2 getting so popular, we are starting to see a lot requests for tutorials on beginner stuff like "How to make a health bar?" I enjoy doing video tutorials when I have time, so I thought it might be nice to have a place for people to can put in a request for a video tutorial about something they are not really understanding.

I'm not looking to do tutorials for overly complex items right now, but more to help the beginners out. I know I learn much better watching a video where someone is talking and explaining.

I'm no Construct pro, but I feel like I have the basics down enough to help out. You can either reply here with a request or shoot me a PM and I will add it here so people don't request the same thing twice.

This is a GREAT idea. For even the most knowledgeable people on C2 don't always TEXTUALLY explain things. It helps many of us to SEE exactly how it's done.

@ArcadEd
Nice I see you're making some vids too =)

Little addition to your video:
[code]spr_Player: set health to max(self.Health-20,0)[/code]In your video we see the health bar sprite going into negative width.
max(a,b) returns the highest of the two numbers.

Anyway, I'd like to speak english as fluently, it would make my vids easier to make and maybe shorter :D

That's a little beyond my simply/basic tutorials. Sorry.
